Banke Bihari Temple
I met few travelers from the TripAdvisor community in Mathura, and we all went to the famous Banke Bihari temple in Vrindavan and joined the never ending line of people in the streets which leads to the temple. Banke Bihari temple is really small and it is impossible for it to accommodate the number of visitors. As a result, there is no space inside the temple and people are literally standing without any gap. Priests were throwing gulaal and colored water from pipes on the devotees.
Since Prem Mandir and ISKON are really close, I decided to visit ISKON again. This time it was more crowded and priests were enchanting bhajans in the corridor as well as in the main temple premises. I never realized how I spent an hour there and wanted to stay more but it was already 9 PM and I had to return to Mathura hence I returned back.
The more one hears about Vrindavan, the more beautiful and alluring the small town becomes. The birth place of Lord Krishna, Vrindavan is visited by tourists from all over the world. With its colourful streets and crowded lanes, this small town may not offer you a respite from the chaos of the cities, but it certainly gives you an experience unlike any other. Located about 11 km from Mathura, a perfect trip should see you combine an excursion to both these towns together. The more popular temples here are the Madan Mohan Temple, near Kali Ghat, Meera Bai Temple and the lovely Prem Mandir. Dedicated to love and situated about 10 km from the centre of town, this is a must visit! Most temples here are dedicated to Lord Krishna and significant episodes in his life. If this is your first visit here, do a little research and speak to locals before deciding which temples you'd like to visit. There are tons of hotels and guesthouses in Vrindavan, and you can decide your hotel according to your budget and choice.
